Maureen Furniss: ‘Maria Lassnig’s animation is consistent with the larger body of feminist production appearing internationally, beginning just when she was creating her early work – focussing on domestic spaces and literally giving an authentic face to female experience.’
During the seventies Maria Lassnig produced her own films Encounter (1970), Chairs (1970), Shapes (1972), Palmistry (1974) a.o. These works refer to observations of the body or what she called the ‘bodily consciousness’. The latter is typically shown on the pages of this remarkable artist’s book.
The artist’s book ‘Animation’ contains 6 images related to animation techniques, incl. one page with an artist’s biography.
